Our Mission

Our mission is simple. I would like to provide each and every parent of a NICU baby with a completed scrapbook page. So many parents with children in NICU don’t get to touch, hold, kiss or sadly, bring their baby home; a pre-made scrapbook page allowing them to slip a picture of their precious little one is perfect. Parents can hang it on their baby’s crib/incubator and eventually take it home with them to place in a scrapbook or frame.

Please CONTACT ME (click on the contact me button on the side bar) if you are interested in donating a premade page or any items that we can use to make more pages. We will glady use any items, cards, prayer cards or page protectors that you can spare! Contact me if you have any questions. Thank you so much!

All pages and cards are being donated to the Good Sam hospital NICU in Cincinnati, OH.

In honor of Dominic's 6 month birthday...


Today is Dominic's 6 month birthday. And, in honor of that, I am announcing Dominic's Donation Project...Pages for Preemies! What is this you ask? Well, simple. I am collecting scrapbook pages for the NICU at Good Sam, here in Cincinnati, OH. I am taking donations of pages, materials to make pages, cards or anything else that we can give to the parents of these preemie babies. So many parents will never have the joy of watching their baby grow up, some, may never even have the chance to even hold their baby in their arms while he or she is healthy and with out wires and gadgets all over their precious new baby. While sitting in the NICU for the 15 days that Dominic was in there, it was gut wrenching to see the babies. It was even harder knowing some would never get to know their baby.

I would like these pages to be given to the parents so they can hang them by the baby's incubator or to take home to frame, or even put into their own scrapbook. The pages can be any size, as long as they are square. 6x6, 8x8, 12x12...doesn't matter to me. I am going to be dropping these pages off the last day of every month.

If you would like to donate, please, PLEASE, contact me.
Thank you!

What a beautiful and thoughtful idea. I'm just starting up a scrapbook class in September. I will have each attendee make one extra page to send to you. I'll email you.

Back in the dark ages, I birth a baby boy. He was in the nursery and the "old way" was that I could not get out of bed for ?? hours to go see him.
He didn't get to come home, I never saw him EXCEPT for the pics my mom took. And I am thankful to God that she did.
Yes I will contribute to Dom's project. Sandie
